Adeneo Embedded changes direction as Witekio

Jon Lawson

With more than 90 engineers on 3 continents, 15 years of experience, and a deeply technical recognised expertise, Adeneo was one of the leaders in developing complex embedded systems. With complete OS and software skills and a system level approach, Witekio provides worldwide support, training and engineering services to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) who are developing advanced software layer solutions for embedded systems and connected devices.

The embedded market is currently experiencing a number of disruptive forces. It is moving into a world of connectivity and interconnectivity, where the information and the data produced by embedded systems are essential.

In parallel, and as a result of the consumerisation of the industry, user expectations are increasing in terms of ergonomics, user experience and performance. This complexity significantly impacts the way embedded systems and connected devices are designed and developed, and moves the primary success factor from a main dependency on technical expertise to the optimisation of the system integration. This implies the need of a strong know how about architecture design, hardware and software compatibility, interaction testing, IP integration, and a deep multi OS and multi technologies expertise. This creates the need for a new kind a player, the system software integrator.

The switch from Adeneo Embedded, embedded software expert, to Witekio, system software integrator has been prepared over several years. The company has been expanding its range of skills with tests and proof of concept in complex, real projects. As a result the company aims to integrate intelligent systems software for any device from the hardware to the cloud by providing services for: Low level software development (drivers, firmware, BSP), Middleware customisation and optimisation (OS, communication, connectivity) and HMI and cross-platform and embedded application development.

The company also integrates third party IP and technologies for specific usage and markets and develops the connections with the global environment such as M2M and the cloud.

“Our new market positioning as system software integrator, supported by our new identity as Witekio, will be the spearhead of our growth strategy and will allow us to be ahead of the curve of the embedded drastic evolution” said Yannick Chammings, CEO at Witekio.
